White smoke at start up
Hello all....I have been noticing white smoke coming out the exhaust when i start the truck up. I had to step on it today because some dink changed lanes with no signal......Left a good puff of smoke when i tromped on it. It doesnt smell oily..more like gas. Any suggestions?

My first thought is valve seals and possibly guides.

Seals aren't a huge deal but guides are.

Are you losing any oil in between changes?
